I am always excited when a good service or product becomes even better. It was nearly 5 years ago that I first wrote about Peapod, the food home delivery service. I talked about how the warehouses work, as well as some feedback on the Peapod experience. While we don’t order groceries all the time, I still find it useful for weeks when I’m not feeling well or have too much going on. Something that hasn’t changed, though, is the challenge of finding a window for delivery when I know I’ll be home and free to receive groceries. Peapod knows that’s a challenge, so they have announced Pick-Up Service. You shop with Peapod as normal and then choose a one-hour Pick-Up window at your local store instead of a (longer) Delivery Window. Swing by the store, pull up to the Pick-Up area, and they will load your car with groceries. You can use your coupons and you’ll still earn your gas rewards and A+ School Points, just like shopping in-store. Best of all, for a limited time, the service is free!
Some of my favorite parts about shopping via Peapod:
- I can shop on the go with their mobile app.
- I can shop from a list of items I’ve purchased in the past, both via Peapod and in-store.
- I can filter for products that are nut-free (as well as other nutritional filters).
- I can quickly see everything that is on sale.
- I can either search for something specific or browse the aisles, just like I do in the store.
- I can shop in the middle of the night.
- I can save my cart and finish later.
